We all waited, and waited, and waited. Then, suddenly the clouds parted and there was Table Mountain! We bought tickets for the cable car online then scooted over to board. It is an organized and safe ride up. No worries. Upon arrival at the top...More

One of the best view i have ever seen. You can go up by cable car but it is better to buy ticket online. You can also walk up to the top by walking.

Beautiful views on the way up inside the cable car. The ride in the cable car is very steady and comfortable, but a bit crowded. Once at the top there are magnificent views to be seen as well as a self-service cafe.

I enjoyed visiting the Table Mountain because even though it was cloudy, I loved the place, it was cold but not that much, the Cable Car was super fast!!

Hike to the top. It's worth it. Great exercise and amazing views of the entire city below. Have a drink at the top to celebrate. Then take the cable car down :)

Enjoyed the rotating cable car floor and the views from the top. Dress warmly as it’s breezy. Lots of opportunities to take photos with dramatic drop offs and backgrounds
